Keith Moon, Dallas 1971, by Andy Powell from Wishbone Ash. 

Touring as The Who’s opener, Andy was accompanied by his wife Pauline, and one night, Keith “broke into my room dressed in a full tie-dyed outfit with a Thompson machine gun, demanding ‘your money or your wife’, and held Pauline and myself ‘in terror’ in our bed while brandishing a Thompson submachine gun. In actual fact he was searching the rooms for the redoubtable Mr. Sunshine, who had been an earlier promoter of The Who and was about to get his ‘just deserts’ for his trouble. Mad Moon exited our room with mumbled apologies to us and shouts of “SUNSHINE, WHERE ARE YOU?” but not before I snapped him with a camera that I’d left beside the bed.”
